    This is a picture I took a long time ago at a Game Preserve in the Arbuckles.

    Is this zebra of the type with black stripes on white or white stripes on black? I cannot tell from this photograph.

    There are two types of zebra which accounts for the difficulty you mention. It can only be resolved from a photo if you revert using B&W. Border Collies exhibit the same difficulty. The ones South of Hadrian's Wall(English) are white dogs with areas of black and those North of the Wall( Scottish) are the reverse.

    Yes I know that Hadrian's Wall no longer demarcates the border but no-one told the collies. :D

    However for a colour photo of a B&W zebra I have to say this is very good

    Nice photo. Was it taken in the Arbuckles in Oklahoma?

    I had a tricolored Border Collier [tan, black and white] when I grew up.

    What did you shoot this with? Curious. It's very tight and clear.

    Not terribly surprising -- he was near the border, after all! :smile:

    Amazing things happen when one is on the border and falls over.

    Something in the range of a 7mm to a 30/06 would be about right.

    Your zebra photograph reminds me of back when I first started shooting 35mm. I went to the St. Louis Zoo and took some animal photographs. My photo of a zebra was of the whole zebra and I really mean the whole zebra. I didn't notice it at the time but when I got my negative printed I realized that the zebra was quite "excited" to get his picture taken. :D
